I'm sure you've heard of the Elf on the Shelf.
We have never done that tradition at our house, but thought this year it would be fun to do, starting tomorrow when we also start our Advent calendar.
Of course, I decided this while sitting at Swimming tonight and had no idea where to buy an Elf on the Shelf at 7:15 p.m.
So instead we bought a Reindeer.
Doesn't he have mischievous eyes?
He's perfect for watching the boys and reporting back to Santa for us.
Brennan would love it if I took him back. He doesn't need anyone watching him or creating havoc in our house. Or reporting back to Santa for goodness sake!
Over dinner (Pizza Hut take-out because I spent quality dinner-making-time on this idea) we had a hilarious time trying to name him.
The "Elf on the Shelf" is just perfect.
David is having a ball with this. He came up with several good ones.
Gotta settle on one though.
What do you think?
The Doe by the Do'
The Doe on the Flo'
The Reindeer on the Chandelier
The Fawn on the Lawn
Comet (his name) on the Carpet
The Deer on the Stair
Of course the boys love:
The Reindeer in the Blendeer
Comet in the Vomit
No idea what this cute guy will be named just yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing what mischief he gets into tonight!
